A Near Dawn - Kickstarter

A Near Dawn is a charmingly devastating psychological thriller with amusing highs, gut-wrenching crashes, and mature themes - produced by Far-off Daydream Games. The story is one part darkness and two parts humour!

When Seattle-based attorney, Sam Nichols - a victim to some disturbing psychological difficulties - takes on an important new case, he finds himself exposed to progressively dire circumstances that threaten to unravel his reality and destroy those closest to him. With his mentor's firm on the brink of collapse, Sam will have to take on a ruthless multinational corporation being protected by some of the vilest people imaginable. The odds already seem out of favor, but you will soon learn that things were never as they appeared - as an even deeper conspiracy begins to emerge. Where will you find yourself if you keep untangling the threads to this mystery? You must be brave to uncover the truth! Our Prologue introduces some of the key characters, the setting (Downtown, Seattle), and hints at the challenges coming ahead, stopping just short of telling you exactly what to expect. The case seems typical. It isn't. One of the concepts for this project was to start from the present day, reality as we know it, and progress down a deep well of psychological, even supernatural mysteries.

This game is inspired by traditional adventure titles like the Broken SwordBlackwell, and Ace Attorney series, as well as darker stories such as Steins;Gate and even Twin Peaks.
